  1. The Android app doesn't appear to support real time updates.

    we have a dashboard using the real time api. it updates in the Web browser fine but you must tap the refresh button in the android app.

  2. Relative Value Plotting

    Allow a user to specify that the different values selected be normalized and all plotted on a relative scale. This would highlight trends between data values that aren't necessarily on the same scale. Like price of houses in an area vs number of homes sold.

  3. Sharing Dashboards with On-Prem SSAS: Add option to make recipients view data with their own credentials

    When sharing a dashboard that connects to an on-prem ssas tabular model/cube, add an option to make users see data according to their own credentials instead of seeing the data as the person who shared the dashboard.

  6. VSO easy one-to-many dependency tracking

    During release/triage meetings and for reporting, we want an easy way to see all the dependences (e.g., Tasks, Bugs, Issues) regardless of whether they are “Parent-Child” or other link types (e.g., Predecessor-Successor). This allows 1) teams to see the full scope of dependences and 2) (at a program level) we can prioritize dependencies based on how many different user stories they impact.

  7. Arrows on a Power Map to represent movement

    Within Power View and Power Map you can - as far as I know - only display information on a certain point (country, city, zip code , etc) However, some of my clients would like to see the movement between different points, for example the movement of goods from The Netherlands to Germany. Wouldn't it be nice if you could plot an arrow on the map to represent the movement?

    The goal is for the dashbaord consumer to rapidly have access to the audit table and aswer the following question :
    - wich etl version I am looking at ?
    - where come from the data I'm looking at ?

  9. Add option to disallow opening underlying reports when viewing shared dashboard

    When sharing a dashboard, add an option to disallow other users from being able to click a dashboard tile and open the underlying report.

  10. Using Power BI as access point for all kind of reports: Excel reports, SSRS-reports, Power BI reports, Power Map reports...

    We have +100 reports: mainly SSRS and (advanced) Excel 2013 reports/dashboards. It would be extremely useful if we could access these reports + Power BI dashboards all from one location: Power BI, so it would be easier for people to find the right report/dashboard instead of looking at different places.

  14. Twitter Widget Tile

    Allow creation of a tile that integrates the official twitter widget code that can be found at https://twitter.com/settings/widgets (have to be logged in to create one). This would allow a real-time updating feed of tweets about your product to be displayed on your dashboard, bringing the customer's voice straight to you.

  15. Better visibility for menu at left

    Having the ability to adjust the font of the left menu would be very helpful. At present, the gray-on-gray default setting can be difficult to read for a number of users. The option to use a more high-contrast color scheme would be great.

  16. Data Refresh: make the dashboard creation process more automated!

    I have a dashboard on which I show some values and metrics regarding specific customers.

    I have scheduled an automatic data refresh from a blob: once a day we refresh our data.

    If a new customer comes up in our data (from our table in the blob) would be possible to automatically make it showing up also in the dashboard (without any needs to manually pin the new customer value and the relative visualization from the report to the dashboard)?

  18. Report header and title bar occupies around 20% of real estate

    Title bar and the report header occupies around 20% of the real estate which makes users to always scroll the dashboard. Is there a way to hide this or better merge the title bar with "Microsoft Power BI Preview" and report header?

  20. Automate Dashboard Homepage

    I have a dashboard on which I show some values and metrics regarding specific customers.
    I have scheduled and automatic data refresh from a blob: once a day we refresh our data. If a new customer comes up in our data (from our table in the blob) would be possible to automatically make it showing up also on the dashboard (without any need to manually pin the value and the graph from the report to the dashboard)?
